After a long hiatus and a move to a new, smaller home for THUNDER GRUNT (hello PodBean!) BONUS DISC is back! Matt and Bob welcome returning guest, CRY-BABY actor, Huey Hesson and newcomer, sleep study professional, Sarah Danger Underhill to watch the second movie in the ACTION PACKED 4 MOVIE MARATHON DVD COLLECTION: ALIENATOR! What did they learn? Evil people from space love deers and having exponentially extended orgasms.
In a baffling twist of betrayal it turns out that Matthew and Bob were in fact evil all along, fooling this week’s guest, Supreme Baltimore Creative: Tyler Merchant, into a false sense of security about his friendships! What is Tyler’s punishment for being so trusting? He was tied to a chair and tortured with a car battery connected, NOT TO HIS LEGS, but to the material of his pants and forced to watch Fred Olen Ray‘s 1987 masterpiece Cyclone (1987 film)! Join these three as they waffle through the complex corridors of this motorcycle movie that’s really about magic batteries, Jeffrey Combs nonchalant murder, and the ungodly tragedy of Jenkins. RIP.
They did it. Bob, Matt and a revolving door of Baltimore’s best guests have somehow generated over 50 hours of scene by scene analysis of obscure, weird, garbage, forgotten movies all right here on BONUS DISC! To celebrate this milestone the guys invite premiere friend of the show, Camp Killerdirector Shawn Jones, and returning guest, star of Driven To Succeed Kathy Carson, to watch one of the most inexplicably vile Roger Corman movies ever made: Humanoids from the Deep! Join this foursome on a journey through not only the film itself, but the making of featurette which puts an already unexplainable, disjointed mess in a rather depressing new light! Take a sexy shower, pop open a can of salmon and listen up!
WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE GO GET BOBBY! Matt and Bob are joined by Rex Anderson to watch a movie Rex graciously, and happily, paid for: EXCESSIVE FORCE II: FORCE ON FORCE! The guys dig deep into this sequel without ever having seen the first movie and boy oh boy do they enjoy this incredibly shot, completely forgotten 90’s vhs gem. Everyone rush to the cemetery and for the love of god find Bobby’s cigs!
Please support independent, local filmmaking! Please Support Baltimore filmmakers! Please never stop creating! Why is Bob saying this? Well him and Matt, along with returning guest, writer of Meanwhile, at the Skull Base, Bryan Preston stumble upon a dvd for a film they didn’t realize was a locally made piece of Baltimore underground filmmaking. It was RISE AND FALL...IN LOVE. They watched it, they had thoughts about it, AND DESPITE THOSE THOUGHTS they really are legitimately excited to see the other movies from filmmaker Lee Doll advertised on the DVD! But yeah…the thoughts aren’t great. SUPPORT INDEPENDENT FILMMAKERS! NEVER STOP CREATING!
Baltimore Comedian Tommy Sinbazo, co-host of the LaughFinder Podcast and actor on Meanwhile, at the Skull Base, joins Matthew and Bob to watch what is quite possibly the most inexplicable BONUS DISC movie so far unearthed! Say hello to TIME BURST: THE FINAL ALLIANCE, an action time-travel movie without action or time-travel. Listen in as the guys try to discern if there was supposed to be aliens in this movie, why all houses in this universe are Jim Henson’s Labyrinth and how the hero gets laid in a field as the bad guys COMPLETELY SUCCEED. It’s all worth it for the morgue scene, trust us.
Instant Screaming‘s Sarah Gorman visits again and she pulls a vhs from Matthew’s magic bag of tapes which turns out to be LEGAL TENDER! Together the three freeze in Bob's own personal meatlocker of an living space and watch Robert Davi (of GOONIES fame), Tanya Roberts and Morton Downey Jr.‘s naked flesh star in a movie which most certainly isn’t about “legal tender” really at all! Always remember folks, check the pockets of your jacket.
This week Bob, Matt and returning guest, musician, professional consultant Jen Tydings pop in a VHS and suffer through a whole lot of hell with HELLHOLE! Listen to these three get dragged away to the basement of this 1985 meandering web of more meandering. Robert Z’Dar and that lady from both ROCK N’ ROLL HIGH SCHOOL movies star in this thriller…er…horror…er…porno…er…thing about a sanitarium that is giving an excessive amount of patients chemical lobotomies whenever they become mildly annoying! Moral of the story: ALWAYS PROTECT YOUR PAPERS.
44 episodes in and the guys at BONUS DISC finally learn about the cyber landscape thanks to the highly educational film WEBMASTER! Join Matt, Bob and guest Michael Ziccardi as they plug into what the internet looked like in 1998! Explore this baffling BLADE RUNNER rip off, which is the only movie featuring anal-sex being interrupted by the protagonist’s search for a T3 high speed internet connection!
SKY FATHER has once again blessed the gents of BONUS DISC with the opportunity to view a visionary prophecy of the very near future, REVELATION ROAD 3: THE BLACK RIDER! Never having seen the first two REVELATION ROADs, Matt and Bob sit down with local baltimore “music man” Brian Gilbert to experience Christian cinema’s answer to MAD MAX: FURY ROAD! See REV. DAVE from GOD’S NOT DEAD be the DAD-ACTION-HERO you’ve always dreamed of, then stay to see Kevin Sorbo dressed like a viking pimp speak to his Walmart-shopper minions in a confusing British/Australian accent!
